Pruning Rosa banksiae 'Lutea'

Can you please tell me when is best to prune this. I am getting conflicting advice on internet. It is about 15ft high and has really thrived but it needs some control. It has blossomed already. Do I wait till winter or can I cut back now? I don't want to jeapordize next years display. Also, how far back do I prune? I am a new comer to roses and really enjoying it.

Rosa banksiae flowers early and can be lightly pruned after flowering, removing some old branches aand shortening others by up to one-third if necessary.

Ideally this is done immediately after flowering but shortening a bit now, if needs be.
